After school I studied applied arts with the idea of working
as an illustrator. At the time I already did a lot of sewing
as a hobby and I began to realise that my creative side really
came to the fore in this field.
Consequently, I obtained the CAP certificate of professional
competence in dressmaking and began creating costumes for
small theatre and dance companies and thus ended up in the
entertainment industry working for years for Bordeaux National
Opera and making costumes for both cinema and stage.
Faced with the difficulties linked to the status of working
intermittently for the entertainment industry, I started
creating stencilled motifs for printing on fabric. I currently
make painted accessories: bags, purses, tobacco pouches… and
recently developed a range of small fashion accessories such
as hand-sewn, embroidered and, sometimes, beaded chokers.
Interested in salvaging, I kept all sorts of items with an eye
to recycling them. One day, I had the idea of creating bags
out of a stack of fruit crates accumulated over the years. I
dismantled the crates and used the two smaller sides as the
bag's handles. This is my favourite objet and beautifully
represents my creativity.
